With Cydia, every time it was launched it would download new releases. It was really painful to go and look around for new applications as loading Cydia would take 10-30 seconds. Also cancelling was unresponsive and took just as long as if I would of let it download. Was this normal? Are there any plans to improve Cydia? With Winterboard my battery was draining way too quickly. I was organizing around 5 pages of applications and my battery was nearly 50% depleted. Is Winterboard normally that power intensive? I knew Winterboard takes up more battery life, but I didn't think it was that bad. Currently I'm back on a stock iPhone firmware. The main reason was with Cydia, so I'm more concerned and looking for information there. I found it really too annoying to use.
